of the united states, giving his first extended response to questions about yesterday's events in benghazi, libya and in cairo, egypt. >> mr. president, for the first time since 1979, a sitting ambassador, christopher stevens, plus three other americans were killed in the line of duty. we send more than a billion dollars a year to egypt, tens of millions to libya after its liberation. is it time to reconsider foreign aid to countries where many of the people don't want us around? >> well, look, the united states doesn't have an option of withdrawing from the world, and we're the one indispensable nation. countries all around the world look to us for leadership, even countries where sometimes you experience protests. so it's important for us to stay engaged, but, obviously, what happened last night was heartbreaking. and libya in particular is a government that is very friendly towards us. the vast majority of libyans welcomed the united states' involvement. they understand that it's because of us that they got rid of a dictator who would crush their spirits for 40 years. many libyans came
of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident. >> not an ally and not an enemy. two u.s. warships are moving in to coast along the coast of libya as the hunt continues for killers of four americans. president obama vowing justice and continuing search for the murderers and their motive. >> as for the ones we lost last night, i want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice. >> meanwhile mitt romney will hold a campaign event in virginia within the hour still causing a stir after doubling down on his criticism of president obama as an poll guest in chief. politicians here and home and oversay sea oversay sees debating the judgment. >> these are moments that test the characters of the candidates. >> there is a lack of leadership there and that's what i would be hoping about and i hope mitt romney will be looking at the big picture. >> i think it was a big mistake.
and a stern warning. the israeli prime min sister warning the united states to establish a clear line that iran cannot cross with the nuclear program. this morning we ask what is that line and what happens if it's crossed? >>> front page scandal. the royal family trying to stop topless pictures of kate from spreading. an italian magazine owned by the former prime minister silvio berlusconi is publishing a 38-page special edition. it's hitting newsstands now. >> a replacement ref replaced before the kickoff. side judge brian stropolo booted for openly being a saints fan. he posted pictures of himself in saints gearal gating. monday morning quarterback this one. one. "newsroom" begins right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with muslim outrage and new flare-ups of anti-american violence. one flash point, kabul, afghanistan. crowds of protesters turn on police when they try to block their march toward the u.s. embassy. at least 15 officers are hurt and their vehicles set on fire. in ind
, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> the film was initially to have thought to have provoked the attack on benghazi, libya, tuesday. ambassador chris stevens, former navy s.e.a.l.s chris woods and glen doherty were killed in that attack along with sean smith. not long after the attack reports surfaced that it might have been the premeditated work of a radical islamic group retaliating for an american drone strike which had killed an al qaeda command leader. libyan officials said they had taken four men into custody in connection with the attack. they also said they thought the attack was meant to drive a wedge between americans and libyans. this may be true. but even with all that has happened in libya, the bigger challenge for the obama administration may be with what's taking place in egypt. where even before the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya protestors stormed the emba
? the ambassador to the united states, susan rice says the attacks were. she claims the murders of four americans, including our ambassador, are a spontaneous reaction to the youtube video but libyan's president says she's wrong, he insists they are premeditated. this worldwide danger is far from over. >> there have been protests around the world over the last several days. why is it the u.s. seem so impotent? >> what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hate full, very offensive video. >> for the united states government to say that it was simply a spontaneous act, flies in the face of the facts. >> the way that the attacks took place, i have serious questions. it seems to be a military style, coordinated. >> this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, predetermined. >> it seems to me that it is well beyond coincidence that all of this happened in connection with september 11th. >> people focus on the spark, the spark of reprehensible and irresponsible film is a spark, but it doesn't explain anything. >> it's approximately a reaction to this video and i
of the ambassador of the united states. >>> in teheran, protests outside of the swiss embassy which represents the u.s. since washington does not have diplomatic relations with iran. and also, american warships and u.s. marines are headed for libya as we speak. just a short while ago we learned identity of one more of the americans who were killed in libya. a person speaking for the family says she glenn dohertyf massachusetts. also, political fallout is building in the country over mitt romney's quick attack over president and the way that the american administration handled this crisis. cnn has reporters right across the globe throughout the middle east and we have handle on every s aspect and angle of this story, and we are life in every location. we will start right now with the anti-u.s. protests in yemen. one important note here sh, ye is a key ally in the fight against al qaeda in the arabian peninsula which has been a massive, massive problem of late. hakeem al wa ssri, is our journalist on the ground there. can you hear me? are you there? >> yes. protesters are decreasing and force forced t
of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
: well the united states and egypt are trying right now to feel each other out. it's kind of like an awkward first date, because before the revolution the muslim brotherhood was an adversary of sort of the united states and there was a lot of mistrust there. so, right now they're trying to build a relationship trying to come together, but the military the egyptian and the american military do have close ties, and this is one of the military officials in the united states said. >> ian lee, thank you. >>> now to libya, where authorities have announced four arrests -- >> and we continue to do so today. we look forward to continuing our bilateral defense relationship. as you know, the secretary recently visited egypt, had very productive discussions there with president morsi and others and our relationship with egypt we believe, is on the right track when it comes to our military ties. >> why not call them an ally? >> i don't think that we really need to get into semantics. i think i've said what i have said. >> reporter: diplomatic tensions may exist, but the
romney the next president of the united states. of america. thank you, everybody. and god bless you. >> that was vice presidential nominee paul ryan wrapping up his remarks at the values voter summit in washington, d.c. he was making the pitch to the public and his own party, that despite the week the romney/ryan ticket has had it ain't over. it is friday, september 14th. this is "now." joining me today, msnbc political analyst and georgetown university professor michael eric dyson. nicolas is here from "the new york times" as daily show cocreator and author of "lizz free or die,iz winstead and buzz feed editor and chief ben smith. we are following a couple developing stories in the hour. the university of texas austin has evacuated all campus buildings after receiving bomb threats. school officials say a man called in claiming to have placed bombs throughout campus. no explosives have been found. no decision yet about whether to resume classes today. north dakota state university is ordering a campus evacuation after receiving its own bomb threats. we will continue to monitor this
around islam and the muslim religion in the united states has become as toxic as it ever has been and that video i think is a crystal clear example of it. >> just to jump in. i think -- i don't know if you've ever been on read it for instance any day you want to find something to be offended by any religion. this film had been out for months. it's a film that's ludicrous and offensive, there was a very specific chain of events people chose to organize riots, assault on the embassy where there were leaders making deliberate choices in the internal politics of this country. the idea that this movie was the central force here, that this was allen inevitable -- all an inevitable outcome -- >> i'm not trying to say that. an industry in arab world, that clerics that ferment their hate. the news outlet that first broadcast this news outlet notorious for creating controversy and creating tension within the sort of western and arab -- >> any given day you can find something like that. >> what is it, renaldo, the anthropologist talks about imperial nostalgia. we destroy countries and then m
and in the united states. two of the weapons were found back in 2010 at the site of a gun fight in arizona where brian terry, that u.s. border patrol agent, was killed. crime and justice correspondent joe johns joins me now. joe, this report is due out later today from the justice department? >> that's true, carol. we're expecting it some time this afternoon. inspector general michael ho horowitz is relatively new to the job. this is his first major report. such a contentious issue and political hot potato. there are a lot of questions you would want to have answered here. whose idea was the fast and furious strategy in the first place? who in the government would say that's okay? how high up did it go? who knew about this thing, and for how long? and why didn't somebody stop it? we'll be watching it closely to see if this report has any definitive answers. this is a story that is badly in need of an honest and impartial broker. the fast and furious story reached its peak in a political atmosphere during a political year. and inspector general's report is always supposed to be about accountabili
here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts don't seem to support it. some of of the jobs were temporary and paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work or that sort of thing. so they did not last. and some of the jobs are not worth the jobs that we lost. a variety of studies say we lost more middle to upper income jobs an gained more lower level jobs. the simple truth is that the numbers may be technically correct in some of the claims, but when you look at all of the details, there is an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> the b.t. founder bob johnson was not a fn of president obama four years ago, so what has actually changed? we will talk to him live in a moment. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ there's another way to help
, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to degenerate the religious beliefs of others. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> reporter: elsewhere in iran, a cleric upped the bounty of the killing of the author of a book that sparked global protest after the late leader called it islam. >> yes, it's a stupid film. the correct response is to say it's a stupid film on youtube and get on with your life. to take it and deliberately use it to inflame your troops is a political act. it's not about religion. >> reporter: when asked why the pakistani government called for a national holiday today, many ways inviting protesters on the street, they told cnn they had to address public sentiment. i think it's already a decision that's been criticized by many. >> thank you. >>> the state department fending off accusations this morning that it failed to secure the u.s. consula
to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than he paid. purely for show he deliberately inflated his tax rate on purpose. on mad o owe blog today it was said mr. romney was in the preferred selection of selecting his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pay. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. but mitt romney is a special kind of millionaire. he doesn't pay 25%. he only pays 14.1%. how do you get 10 points below the rate that even the other millionaires are paying? you get that by trying, by working really hard by avoiding taxes. as the wa
is building an offshore oil well in a sea 90 miles off the north slope between the united states and russia. just the possibility of a disaster like the one in the gulf back in 2010 has people in alaska very concerned. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. this project has been in the work for six years now? >> there has been. there's even been a two-year delay for more safety testing because of the bp disaster that happened in the gulf of mexico. i want to give you an idea just what this project looks like. this is the animation from shell oil of the site we're talking about. what's happened here is the obama administration, it gave the go ahead to start what it calls limited preparatory activities. that includes installing a blowout preventer. we all learned that term two years ago when pb's blowout preventer failed in the gulf of mexico and launched the biggest oil disaster. that prompted a moratorium on all offshore drilling on new projects. the u.s. geological survey estimates we may be able to get more than 90 billion barrels of oil, carol, from this part of the world. that'
it would be wrong for the united states to apologize for distance itself from this bigoted anti-islam video. well, neither our state department nor our country, nor i think if i can say so, most americans have any reason to defend this vile and previously obscure video that surfaced online from some extremist. it is frustrating for the foreign policy and the diplomacy at stake here to have someone of mr. romney's stature implying wrongly that somehow we need to defend this crap. >> steve clemens, there's a statement that the romney campaign policy director made to "the new york times" which indicates that they were waiting for something like this, they were waiting to pounce. she said, we've had this consistent critique and narrative on obama's foreign policy and we felt this was a situation that met our critique. so, steve, she's saying they were waiting for something and they saw this and they thought, okay, this is it, here we go. and they jumped out there with the attack. and so this seems to have been premeditated even before the events developed. >> sure it was, lawrence. and i think
candidate, president of the united states, and i think this is a good step in the right direction, but i haven't seen the returns and so i don't know exactly what's in them. >> christine, the average tax rate for the -- about 30% or so, or somewhere in the upper 20s, 30s for -- >> for -- say that again? >> the average tax rate for americans is much higher than 14.1%. >> well, it is on paper. the marginal tax rates are higher. remember, don, you look at the irs tables and this is kind of a misnomer, you look at the irs tables for middle class effective tax rates, people in the middle class are paying what mitt romney pays and in some cases even less because of deductions for your mortgage, for your children, for education tax credits and the like. so, you know, mitt romney pointing out that over the 20 years paying something like an average effective tax rate of 20%, that's something that people who have been ready to be very critical of mitt romney, thinking maybe there will be years in there where he didn't pay any pricewaterhousecoopers saying he did pay taxes every year and the averag
